Note to Doman: the offense struggles because of the poor choice to give Riley a
scholarship to the Y and then to play him over far better qualified QB's.
But you can't coach a passing QB because you never could throw a forward
pass farther than 10 yards yourself,so you picked someone, along with your head
coach, who had "heart" but no ability to play the position the way
it's played at BYU. Result: you're looking at it,and get this, your
athletic director, who can play football, is looking, too!Maybe
there's some hope for Holmoe, or maybe he's just blathering to the
press again. Me thinks he's finally feeling and acknowledging the heat
from the fans, the press, and the dollar-contributing Cougar Club.Times up, Doman. You're a good guy put in a position to fail.
Doman is NOT a Div 1 offensive coordinator. His decision to call plays from the
sidelines is ridiculous. He should be let go and should consider going to a
junior college or a div 2 college for at least 5 years to gain a better
understanding of this position. I don't care if he was a QB, it
doesn't make one a strong offensive coordinator. BYU needs a seasoned
coordinator. This offense has been frankly, offensive. It lacks punch. It is
boring. The QBs are not the best we have ever had,.
Doman is definitely not ready for this. Maybe one day, but not today. He is
blowing his chance. Three areas of concern. First, penalties. That
is on the coaches, and you cannot win games with 7,8,9 penalties a game.
Penalties are a sign that the team is not coached well. Second,
Nelson. The decision to stick with and play Nelson when he was hurt (Utah and
Boise State), is unacceptable. Nelson is to blame, Doman is to blame and Bronco
too. In that order. Seriously, who thinks allowing a guy to play with broken
vertabrae is ok? Nelson is only a decent QB when he is healthy. Third, he is lost. He looks confused and lost most of the time. Being on the
sidelines, making calls isn't working. The "miscommunication" of
the Hill injury, was a pop-warner level mistake. I just don't think he is
going to rebound. Doman was a pretty good QB when he was in school, and did a
good job as QB coach with Hall. But he is lost and overwhelmed as an OC.
RE: BigLebowski"First, penalties. That is on the coaches, and
you cannot win games with 7,8,9 penalties a game. Penalties are a sign that the
team is not coached well."I thought that was a bold claim so I
did some digging. USC leads the country in penalties this season (with 171),
while BYU ranks 25th (with 129). Other teams with more penalties than BYU
include #18 UCLA (161), #20 Louisiana Tech (161), #22 Texas Tech (141), #5
Georgia (135), #7 LSU (133), and #3 Oregon (132). I think it's
safe to say that number of penalties has no direct correlation with winning or
It's turbulent Because Doman doesn't know how to coach a drop back QB.
He choked against Boise State, WSU, Utah and Notre Dame. But Bronco may be the
bigger problem. Clock Management cost us the chance at winning three of the 4
games we lost. And then Coach Mendenhall says that he was happy with the way he
used his time outs. Either he doesn't understand clock management or he
just thinks that we fans aren't noticing what bad game management skills he
has. This year could have been great but I feel that the problems lie with
Doman and Mendenhall. Broncos time management bungles are an easy fix. Doman
has got to go! There is no saving him. He doesn't have the skill set to
run the offense. I never thought I would say this, but where the Heck is Robert
Anae when we need him!
